I have worked on a lot of 'plate' art and never once have I given consideration to putting a necklace on one...and to be honest, I wish I had. I love the idea. This artist is definitely thinking outside the box.

This is the single most beautiful home I have ever seen built completely of siding. It is so minimalistic but the care and quality of the design is unexpected and uncharacteristic of the siding homes I typically see built. It is somewhere in New Orleans by Lang Architectural firm.
Good Stock is a print/publishing company that produces these unique photo books. I have always wanted to put together my mother's memoirs and I think that they could do it justice. I am so impressed...their work is stunning.

I suppose growing up in the Midwest has inspired a mild fascination with barn conversions, especially if they are done well and this one by Stonely Pelsinski Architecture is stunning. I am drawn to minimalism and of course its title, "Graye's End Barn".

This is a 'Toothfairy Kit' sold on Fawn & Forest. I think its a great idea - especially in this beautifully packaged letterpress format, complete with tiny envelopes and documentation seals. What a great thing for a kid to have.

Someone doubted me when I mentioned that there is a huge Squirrel trend happening right now. They're everywhere! With the onslaught of owls and woodland creatures in fashion and home decor, it was only a matter of time before a much cuter and furrier animal took over the bird's 15 minutes of fame. Maybe it is personal preference on my part since I do have a particular affinity for the creature. This will be my personal squirrel collection since they range from passifier clips to earrings and throw pillows - proof that the squirrel had its day and it was deserving.

I can appreciate these photos that show balloons in a very sophisticated and high art manner. Most women would prefer flowers. Some people truly hate balloons. Some people are even terrified of them. I love them and I always have, I see something infinitely beautiful about them and I understand why children are so captivated by them. I think they are underrated, maybe that is why I do well in the Party Goods Industry. A room full of balloons might make me feel better.
I really have no idea why I am drawn to sweets and desserts - I don't necessarily eat them but I love the pastel palettes. I have always loved candy illustrations and Ice Cream shops and this is another unique concept out of California for a gourmet ice cream store called Ici Ice Cream.
